Rural hromada follows new technologies – a robotics club will open in the Illinivska AH. Introduction of the latest technologies in teaching of children was initiated by Volodymyr Marynych, head of the AH.
The idea of developing a technical direction in the rural hromada arose due to the constant scientific and technological progress, which children should not lag behind from just because they live in a village and not in a big city.
“Training in robotics does not mean working with robots that children see in cartoons, it's about special programmed constructor,” explains Volodymyr Marynych.
To purchase four construction sets about UAH 100 thousand were allocated from the AH budget. Equipment is designed for two age categories: for children aged 6 to 10, and adolescents. Four sets are enough for group training of up to 50 schoolchildren.
The premises for the “RoboTechCorp” (the technical club was named exactly like this) were provided in the building of the village council, on the place of the former library. The repairs are planned to be carried out at the expense of hromada’s own funds. Already in October, the first lessons in robotics should begin. Until then, the hromada is actively looking for young, proactive IT professionals to conduct robotics club.
To look at the level of robotic competitions, the head of the illinivska AH organised a trip of more than 60 children to the “ROBOSKHID” festival in Kramatorsk. There the teams of pupils from different cities of the Donetsk Oblast demonstrated their achievements in robotics.

“An example of the Illinivska AH clearly demonstrates a new quality of local government that seeks ways for the hromada to develop through education and innovation,” commented Maksym Tkach, decentralisation adviser of the Donetsk Local Government Development Center, established with the support of the U-LEAD with Europe Programmw. “The rural hromada develops not only agriculture, but is also thinking about innovations and new technologies. Robotics club in the Illinivska AH can be an impetus for other small hromadas to develop.”
